If States Opt Out of Medicaid Expansion, Over 4 Million Women Could Remain Uninsured | The Nation

If States Opt Out of Medicaid Expansion, Over 4 Million Women Could Remain Uninsured | The Nation | Daily Crew | Scoop.it

One aspect of the Supreme Court’s decision could have some very bad results for women: the ruling that states can opt out of the Medicaid expansion. While this could end up harming men and women, women in particular stand to suffer if states refuse to participate in the program.

The NRA's Circus of Fear

With the November 2012 elections fast approaching, the NRA's "Circus of Fear" is making appearances from coast to coast in an attempt to convince gun owners that "Gun Ban Obama" is out to get them. In reality, the NRA is using the gun issue to mobilize Libertarian-leaning voters to join with Religious Conservatives in the Conservative Movement. The true goal is to "drown [government] in the bathtub," as NRA board member Grover Norquist said—because it's hard to imagine any future president doing less to regulate the gun industry than Obama has.

Republican Statesman of the year Donald Trump is an idiot

Republican Statesman of the year Donald Trump is an idiot | Daily Crew | Scoop.it

You may have read that casino gambling revenues on the Las Vegas strip were down 18.15% in May and thought that could possibly slow down Mitt Romney's (and the Republican Party's) top source of funds, organized crime figure Sheldon Adelson. But it won't. Adelson's billions come primarily from gambling, prostitution and other rackets from his Chinese Golden Bamboozle empire.

A LONG List of President Obama’s Accomplishments! With Citations!

A LONG List of President Obama’s Accomplishments! With Citations! | Daily Crew | Scoop.it

If you’re one of those folks who thinks President Obama is a “disappointment,” you haven’t been paying attention the last few years. And those of you who try to draw comparisons with the Bush Administration should put away the hallucinogens and have your memory checked. If you were in a coma for the eight Bush Years, I apologize and forgive you. But please join the real world. So far, this president has done most of what he said he would do if elected; imagine what he could have done by now if progressives had supported him and not given him a Congress that doesn’t look at him as if he’s the demon seed.

Rush Limbaugh Shows That Obama Hates America by Hating America Himself

Heaving, wheezing pustule Rush Limbaugh knew that he needed to get himself good and primed for his rantings yesterday. Sweating after downing a Quizno's steak sandwich with horseradish/oxycontin spread on it, he could feel the lethargy setting in as he read over his notes for the next segment. Oh, this would be a good one, one that the slavering shut-ins, elderly, and truckers that comprise his audience would be repeating over and over to their friends and relatives, something that'd make the heads of those faggots over at Media Matters explode.
